June 2016


It almost rained the day of our Elkhorn Golf Club tournament in May, but we got lucky again and the rain held off.  No such troubles at all for Castle Oaks later in May—a beautiful day with light winds.  The Elkhorn tournament was a partner’s best ball event, which gave each team a mulligan of sorts, if only the players could alternate their good and not-so-good holes.

Castle Oaks was also the NCGA qualifier for two, two-person teams.  TRGC should have a great chance here with our teams of Brad Erway, Steve Ryan, Alan Staton, and Rich Anderson.  They will be playing their qualifying matches later this summer.  All the best of luck, guys.



We play Wildhorse in Davis on Saturday, June 11, so this event is happening right now Later in June, we will play at Micke Grove on Saturday, June 25.  Renee already has the entry form and announcement sent out for Micke Grove.  July starts out with Teal Bend on July 16.




Nope, I can’t help make you a better player.  The tip of the month might make you a faster player, though, which will help your game and the overall pace of our tournaments.


June Tip:  What’s the most important shot in golf?  It’s the next shot!  The time to start thinking about that all-important shot is right after the last shot.  Now what?  Go for the green?  Lay up?  Chip sideways from the trees or go for that tiny little opening toward the green?  All that thinking takes time, so give it an early start and finish most of the brainwork before you get to your ball.  This not only speeds up play, it will help you come to the best decision for your next shot.  Give it a try—and forget about that little opening in the branches ahead, too.
